Ottawa, 9 December 2010

Review of the large incumbent local exchange carriers’ support structure service rates

File numbers: 8638-C12-201017137, 8690-C12-200910408, and 8690-T66-200814774

Correction

1.         The Commission is issuing corrections to paragraph 41 and Step 3 of Appendix 2 of the English version of Review of the large incumbent local exchange carriers’ support structure service rates, Telecom Decision CRTC 2010-900, 2 December 2010. The corrections are highlighted below in bold italics.

41.     In this proceeding, TCC was the only ILEC to provide information on the relative use of conduits by an ILEC and third parties. TCC’s sample information showed that third parties own 30 percent of cables in conduits. The Commission considers this sample information does not differ materially from the 33 percent utilization factor discussed above. However, unlike in Telecom Decision 95-13, the Commission considers that the percent-utilization factor for conduits should not be adjusted for differences between the size of ILEC and third-party cables given the increased use of fibre cables by the ILECs since that time.

Step 3:   Determine what proportion of the embedded cost per unit is attributable to third-party use

  • The embedded cost per unit from Step 2 for poles, and from Step 1 for strands and conduits, was multiplied by the percent-utilization factor associated with units to which third parties attach. For each of poles, strands, and conduits, the percent-utilization factor was calculated based on the number of cables owned by third parties relative to the total number of cables owned by both the ILECs and third parties.

2.         The Commission is also issuing a correction to the table provided under paragraph 57 of the French version of this decision. The correction is highlighted below in bold italics.

STC

Utiliser 792 000 torons pour l’Alberta et la Colombie-Britannique, et 175 300 torons pour le Québec.

Le Conseil a utilisé l’estimation révisée de 838 000 torons pour l’Alberta et la Colombie-Britannique et de 340 700 torons pour le Québec.

La STC a fourni des estimations révisées relatives au nombre de torons, mais elle n’a pas révisé son étude de coûts.
